Rock Star

As early as I can remember, I wanted to be a rock star.
Not just a rock star. I wanted to be Jem.
The pink hair, the magic star earrings, the wild make up.
I wanted to be just like her.

But really, I just wanted attention.
I couldn't sing. I couldn't dance.
But I loved to talk.
Ham it up.
Always the boss.
The center of attention.

For several years, I was Jem for Halloween.
I remember in Kindergarten, my teacher let me MC for the "Christmas" concert.
I was always in choir.

But as I got older, the tomboy side of me won out.
I played sports and excelled at fastpitch, playing from 7 until 18.
I always wanted to be in plays, drama, but never had the time.
So choir was it.

I loved to sing. I still love to sing.
I don't care anymore if I am any good at it.
Goose likes it when I sing.

Some of my best memories from school come from choir.
Girls choir. Symphonic Choir (mixed). And Jazz Choir.
Jazz Choir was a 0 hour class, audition only.
I was proud to be a part of "JC."

And finally, a break in my fastpitch schedule Senior year.
I signed up for my first (and only) play.
"Good News."
I even had a speaking part.
It was a musical and I still can't dance.
But it was the most fun I ever had.

I'm still a show off.
I still like to be the center of attention.
And, I think, that is why I blog.

For the attention.

To have a captive audience to listen to my crazy so my husband doesn't have to.
And to show off a bit.
I would never do it in person.
But on MY blog I can just yell


I think I still want to be a rock star when I grow up.


I also wanted to be the president.
Again for the attention.
Cuz I would then be the boss of everyone!
